Spoilers - Roundabouts
One band who caught my, and many other people's, attention 3 years back were Canterbury melodic punk band Spoilers. They burst onto the scene with debut ep Stay Afloat, their song Punk's Don't Die being a particular anthem from that summer. If you missed the ep then I'd advise you to check it out : https://spoilersuk.bandcamp.com/releases
Since then they've been fairly quiet. There's been gigs (often alongside UK punk legends Snuff) but the only other release was 2016's split ep with No Marks https://bosstuneagerecords.bandcamp.com/album/split-ep-4, (although frontman Dan Goatham put out acoustic versions of 3 of their songs on an ep last year https://dangoathamlrr.bandcamp.com/ ). Yesterday I was pleased to discover they're getting ready to release their debut album. It'll be titled Roundabouts and as well as unveiling a video for the title track, they've made the album available for pre order (4 colour variations for the vinyl) : https://spoilers.bigcartel.com/. It'll be available in the UK via Boss Tunage and Brassneck as well as SBAM Fest (Europe), Little Rocket Records (North America/Canada) and Waterslide Records (Japan).
If you're near Cleethorpes tomorrow you'll be able to catch them sharing a stage with Bad Cop/Bad Cop, Bombpops and Billy Liar whereas next month will see them touring Europe with bands the calibre of Lagwagon, Lillingtons, The Lawrence Arms etc. Check out details here : https://www.facebook.com/spoilersuk/
As catchy as they ever were, This is Roundabouts...
